Q&A with filmmakers Eric Green and Sarah Ogletree and post-screening reception
The first-ever documentary about one of the most influential, underground music movements of the 20th century. This is the story of Cocteau Twins, The Jesus and Mary Chain, and My Bloody Valentine and how their groundbreaking music, while not selling a whole lot of records, inspired generations of bands to come. From the late 1980s to the early 1990s, there was a period when innovative musicians mixed guitar noise into conventional pop-song structures while maintaining a philosophy of letting the music speak for itself. Ten years in the making, the film features over 50 interviews with members of the aforementioned bands, as well as Ride, Slowdive, Chapterhouse, Lush, Curve, Swervedriver, Medicine, Pale Saints, Seefeel, AR Kane, Telescopes, Catherine Wheel, Flying Saucer Attack, and special appearances by music icons Wayne Coyne, Trent Reznor, Billy Corgan, and Robert Smith.
